LesCarpenter Posted November 13, 2013 Share Posted November 13, 2013 I was wondering if anyone can help with problem I have. I am using Autocad 2011 although I only use it to tidy my drawings prior to sending to my client, my proficiency is quite basic. I have been tasked with surveying a number of feeder pillars or cabinets with 5 points of data, pt 1 is the centre of the doors, the other 4 points are the corners of the cabinet always in the same order. These can be imported into Autocad as a series of points and then I have to join the dots, and draw the cabinet. I know a little about blocks and that I can create a block of my drawing and place it over the five points, and then I'm stuck as if I change the block once it changes it in all the other positions. After i have placed the block, I need to list the coordinates of the 5 points, this i do individually using the id command and copy and paste into a table. Is there anyway to speed this up? I have attached a sketch of what I'm after doing, there could be as many 20+ cabinets in a drawing. So any help is appreciated. Many thanks in advance. fp1 trial.dwg feeder pillar template.pdf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
